I was hesitant to tryout Isadora's Cafe. However, I was pleasantly surprised that they had really good food, fast service and reasonable prices. My wife and I wound up eating breakfast there all three mornings we were in New York City.

Ate here on a couple of occasions. They are a cross between a mini mart and eatery. There are many choices for combos. The prices are also very reasonable.

There is a complete variety of breakfast, lunch and dinner cuisine, including snacks and pudding. A fine family business with attentive and lovely staff. A great and reliable place to eat.

Stayed at the Omni Berkshire across the road and so visited here a few times during my stay. Staff are all friendly and helpful and the food is reasonably priced considering where you are. Definitely recommend a visit here!
